THE RECOGNITION OF JOHN LABELLE

When one works hard for his fellow man
Others take notice and they action a plan.
Some ex-military folks they noticed your worth.
Our Budman, of course, he’s so down to earth.

Congratulations John for all you have done.
Even though Bill C-201 it nearly almost won.
You never give up bro, you never ever quit.
The Veterans Ombudsman award – you deserve it!

Author’s Note: In recognition of the awarding of the “Veterans Ombudsman's Commendation” in October 2010 to John LaBelle by the Canadian Veterans Ombudsman, Mr Pat Stogran, former Colonel in the Canadian Armed Forces.
